We had another Christmas party at the clubhouse where Mom lives. We cheated on the food and just ordered Pizza! Did have home-made birthday cake for Mom’s birthday the day before.

Today on our drive back to Maine, we drove to the top of Mt. Washington for a lovely view of the surrounding country. We lucked out and the weather was clear and not even too windy or cold!
Today we crossed over (and stayed the night in) the last state I needed to visit to cross all 50 off my list, Vermont! The weather wasn’t perfect, but we passed through some lovely country with the leaves just turning!
Today we went to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens just north of Portland.
We crossed through five more states bringing the total to 18 for the trip. Just one more state to go for me to have my 50!
Today we drove through three states bringing the total to lucky thirteen!
And, while we cruised through New Jersey we had the chance to visit with Justin, Calie and the boys at Calie’s booth at a local street fair! And, to top it off, my daughter Jennifer had flown in that day to visit Justin and Calie! Family visit!!
Couldn’t find the “Welcome to Delaware” sign, so this will have to do.
One of my dreams ever since reading “Misty of Chincoteague” as a little girl was to visit the island and see the horses. Well, today we did just that!
We drove from South Carolina to Maryland today adding three more states for a total of ten.
